Woman Killed in Hit And Run Crash Identified


Columbus Police just identified the woman killed in a hit and run crash in northeast Columbus.

The crash happened just after 10:15 p.m. Friday on Morse Road near Hamilton Road.

Columbus Police said Pamela Sue Beckman, 54, was hit by a vehicle going eastbound.  That vehicle took off.

The force of the impact threw Beckman to the ground, where she was hit by another vehicle heading westbound.  She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Witnesses said the driver that took off drove a newer model black Ford pickup truck.  Officers said the vehicle will likely have damage to the driver front end.

That second driver who stopped was not charged. There are no cross walks on that part of Morse Road, so the woman should not have tried to cross there.

Police are asking anyone with information about that black, Ford pickup truck with front end damage call (614) 645-4767.
